Pitching & Hitting Instruction
I think about baseball when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day and I dream about it at night. The only time I don’t think about it is when I’m playing it.”

Softball Instruction & Softball Clinics
4 year starter at UCLA, 2-time All American, National Champion, member of Team USA, 1st round draft pick in the NPF to the Chicago Bandits, and currently in her second year as the Volunteer Assistant coach at Arizona State University.
I have been lucky enough to play at the highest level in the game, but I love teaching every age, from beginners to advanced college athletes. I am available for private hitting lessons, and my goal is to get the hitter to optimize their power and strength.
As the leadoff hitter in college, I also specialize in the “lefty slapping game” teaching the proper footwork, techniques of different slaps, skills of drag bunting and how to get to first base as quickly and efficiently as possible.
I believe the mental side is just as important as the physical sides in the game of softball. By not only improving the hitters mechanics, but also building a strong and positive mindset, I have coached and instructed many of top collegiate softball players in the game and can help any player get to the next level of their game.
